One of FOJ’s major events puts the spotlight on the two local colleges whose students will provide continuous live jazz for The Muck’s 2023 Artistic License Fair.

Saturday, November 4, noon to 4pm –That’s the day when talented college musicians will perform live jazz at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton. The date marks the first day of The Muck’s two-day Artistic License Fair and Friends of Jazz will provide the music. This free outdoor event features Fullerton College and Cal State University, Fullerton’s jazz bands and vocal jazz performing a variety of tunes with their big bands, combos and solo jazz vocalists. Each band will play for about two hours on the Muck’s outdoor amphitheater stage.

The venue provides art exhibits along with some craft fair booths. FOJ will have tables and a display area with our banner, thank-you letters from grateful student recipients and membership sign-ups for anyone wanting to join FOJ.

During the event, Friends of Jazz will award scholarships to the two schools and numerous student musicians from both schools.
